A Mission to Serve Our Veterans
As a veteran, you made sacrifices for our country. You were there for us when we needed you, now let us be there for you. Many veterans are unaware of the Veterans Aid & Attendance benefit. This benefit provides qualifying veterans and surviving spouses a pension amount issued by the VA that allows for eligible candidates and their surviving spouses to access non-medical in-home care services. This is but one of many possible benefits that senior veterans may have available to them from state and national programs.
